Who We Are

Siegel Family Endowment supports organizations working at the intersections of learning, workforce, and infrastructure. The primary objective of our grant-making is to champion organizations whose work contributes to making a world in which all people have the tools, skills, and context necessary to engage meaningfully in a rapidly changing society. SFE was founded in 2011 by computer scientist and entrepreneur David M. Siegel, a co-founder of Two Sigma.

Our Mission

To understand and shape the impact of technology on society

Our Vision

A world in which all people have the tools, skills, and context necessary to engage meaningfully in a rapidly changing society

How We Work

We're Collaborative

We work closely with grantees and partners in the field to develop strategies and solutions that drive progress for our shared goals.

We're Risky & Experimental

We’re eager to develop new solutions and do work that goes beyond the limits of traditional funder responsibilities.

We're Relationship Driven

We have a “people first” approach to our relationships with grantees and partners, and consider a wide range of factors when developing engagement strategies.

We Source Grants Deliberately

We don’t ask that our grantees fit a certain mold, or change who they are to fulfill our own objectives. We want to work with people and organizations whose work is forward-thinking and true to their core values.
